Story: Mufasa, head lion of his pride, rules the jungle as “king of the beasts.” He presides over a flourishing kingdom, loved by his wife Sarabi but despised by his brother Scar. The latter resents that Mufasa’s young son, Simba, is heir to the throne. Scar plots various ways to murder Mufasa, finally succeeding when he lures Simba into a stampede of wildebeests. Mufasa rescues Simba but dies as a result, and Scar quickly ascends the throne with a menacing group of hyenas as his henchmen.
Simply put, Joe Allen was a brick wall last Saturday night. Allen, the Parkway West water polo goalie, stood tall and proud against a vaunted SLUH lineup in the Missouri Water Polo state championships. Allen treaded water for the entire 37 minutes as the Longhorns came away with an 11-10 victory in sudden death. “You watch movies, and it’s kind of like every athlete’s dream to go out and win state your senior year, especially in this fashion,” Allen says. “It just went back and forth and back and forth and fortunately for us, it went forth at the perfect time.”

Steven Emde is a marvel to those who watch him and a magnificent machination to those who have to defend him. The Parkway West senior water polo player is among the most lethal things you’ll find in a chlorinated pool. Last year, Emde scored 112 goals and handed out 56 assists. He was named the All-Metro Player of the Year as he helped the Longhorns to a 25-7 record and a third-place finish in the state tournament.
